Indonesia is one of the countries that effected of the global spread of the corona virus disease 2019 (COVID 19) outbreak. The virus has changed the lifestyle in all aspects of life significantly. One of the changes is field of education. Learning process in all grades beginning from elementary until lectures have got changing. Before pandemic learning process was done by face to face but now it is done by online. This condition has forced all students and lectures to follow the changing of procedure, mechanism, system and culture of education. Face to face and online learning process have different characters so that both need the packaging and design which are able to adapt with the current situation and condition. Besides that, it must be pay attention to the students’ ability, characteristic and the gap of facilities that the parents have. The different students background will have an effect on how to design and to manage long distance learning process done. Therefore, it is important to know the students’ view on implementation of learning process. To know that so a research was conducted using descriptive quantitative method through survey with a multistage random sampling technique. This study uses several theories, including the Hilary Parraton’s theory (1988). It was about the distance learning that separated the lectures and students by space and time. Michael Moore’s distance transactional theory (1970) is called “self study” and Wedemeyer’s theory (1981), the essence of distance education is independence. The result of study shows that there are students who don’t have the facilities of online learning process although the amount of those are less. It is only 0.6%. it means that there are students who can’t attend online learning process. Besides they don’t have the facilities of online learning process, they also have the obstacle of quotas and internet networks. Thus, online learning process can’t be followed by all students because of the limitation of those facilities. As for the quality of the implementation of online long-distance learning process according to the results of research are very surprising. They showed 74% of respondents said that the implementation of the online long-distance lectures during the COVID 19 pandemic was not better than normal lectures or face to face lectures. 8.9% of respondents said that it was better than normal lectures, and 17% of respondence said that online lectures were the same as face to face lectures in campus.
